Gaspé, Quebec – On Sunday, August 20, police officers from the RCMP’s Marine Security Enforcement Team (MSET) seized several firearms, as well as numerous magazines and ammunition, on board a sailboat off Pointe-à-la-Renommée in Gaspésie. Wayne Alfonza Bradford, 63, from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, was arrested. He has been charged with possession of a prohibited/restricted firearm with ammunition. Further charges may be laid against him.
MSET police officers intercepted the vessel during a watch patrol. After checks, they found that the individual had not reported his presence to the Canada Border Services Agency or declared his firearms. In the boat, they discovered a semi-automatic assault rifle and loaded semi-automatic pistol. They also found around ten prohibited high-capacity magazines and hundreds of rounds of ammunition. Mr. Bradford is scheduled to appear for his bail hearing on August 24 in Percé via videoconference.
